Gentle, and loving persistence on my story.
I don’t know if this helps or not. My daughter was vehemently anti gun. Until Covid 19 and a semi stalker. She came to me and asked me for a gun. I said of course but you and your Mom have to go get some training firs (figured she would be more likely to go than with me). She said no, and even though my heart said give her a gun, my head said no. Gently over next few months whenever I went to range I would call to see if she wanted to come.
She always told me no. Then one day I had a stressful day and needed some recoil therapy so I called her and asked if she wanted to come, she asked if she could come with one of her roommates and voila, magic happened, turned 3 liberal Democrats into liberal Democrats who also supported the 2nd Amendment.
Daughter now has a S&W Shield .380 EZ, and her concealed carry licence. She’s 20, on full academic scholarship is graduating a 4 year college in 2 years and starts her medical school in January.
I kid, I kid. Or do I?
